However, I have been listening to a lot of podcasts from the Edinburgh Fringe festival instead of music on the way into work for a few weeks, so music took a little break.
However, had a nice break with the Mez clan and was dutifully informed that I should get back to writing. Or else.
I come back to this and the 'writing' interface has all changed - I hope I can make it at least seem similar to before. So.... what was todays Track 23? Not this track, but this band.... and the track below is more than a fair representation of them.
They have had rappers in the group (Skogen and DJ Skooly) as well as rather touching performances from Ike Willis in the past.
Music wise, they certainly are quite "New Orleans" in the fact that there is a lot of them playing horns, jazz in their breaks, but particularly with this track - listen to the Tuba. It takes sole charge of the bass line, with short stabbing notes, like a bass player plucking at his strings.
What other tracks are worth listening to?
But it isn't just noise that they are capable of - listen to what happened when Zappa favourite Ike Willis joined them....
Everything is better with horns and seeing as these guys all play horns, they must be great.
